tv Jimmy Kimmel Live ABC June 28, 2012 12:00am-1:05am PDT
tomorrow. good night. up next on an all-new "jimmy kimmel live" -- >> 28 years ago today, khloe was born to chris and chewbacca kardashian. >> matt wileblanc. >> true or false. you hate the theme song to "friends." >> it's all right. >> selma blair. and music from linkin park. >> time to sit back and unwind every moment, front and max, chilling in the car you spent
>> dicky: from hollywood, it's "jimmy kimmel live!" tonight -- matt leblanc. selma blair. and music from linkin park. with cleto and the cletones. and now, like last time, here's jimmy kimmel! ♪ it's "jimmy kimmel live" [ cheers and applause ] >> jimmy: thank you. well, that's -- thank you, cleto. hi there, i'm jimmy, i'm the host of the show. thank you for watching. thank you for being here tonight.
thank you for always being here for me. let me tell you, i'll never forget it. are you enjoying your summertime so far? [ cheers and applause ] didn't mean to start with such a difficult question. i love summertime. it's time to sit back and unwind. every moment fronting and maxing. chilling in the car you spent all day waxing, you know what i'm saying? [ laughter ] our president, as you may know, has been spending his summer asking for money. that's what you have to do if you want to get elected, i guess. he's had some trouble with sports-related topics this week. on monday night in boston, he made a joke that had red sox fans in the crowd booing him at his own fund-raiser and then last night at a fund-raiser in miami beach, he mispronounced the name of their nba team. >> finally, it would be incomplete if i did not congratulate the city of miami
for having the world champion miami heat here in town. >> jimmy: it's funny when it isn't you, right? the miami heat. you know that half white side of him definitely pokes through every once in awhile. it's surprising that obama would make a mistake like that, considering what a big basketball fan he is, but it isn't the first time. i happened upon one of his campaign ads today online and all of a sudden this heat thing makes a lot more sense. >> it's a pivotal time in our nation's histories. our futures, health cares and the well faefares of our childr are at risks. we needs a president, who puts his politics aside for the goods of americas. votes s obamas. y yeses he cans. >> i'm barack obama and i
approves this messages. >> jimmy: this is kind of interesting. the national geographic channel is sending people's tweets into space. in 1977, an astronomer working at ohio state university intercepted a transmission, radio transmission that's now called the wow signal. it was a mysterious signal from space that was so strong, the guy who recorded it wrote "wow" on his data sheet. some believe it was aliens. look at that again. it looks more like my receipt from costco. [ laughter ] the message came in 1977 and we are now just getting around to responding to it. we're very busy here on earth opening cupcake shops, so -- [ laughter ] a show called "chasing ufos" is collecting tweets and they plan to beam them back in the direction the signal originally came from. this is a good strategy to keep the aliens from invading us. after reading a few thousand
tweets about justin bieber, they probably won't ever want to come here. [ laughter ] do we really want aliens reading our tweets? can't we send them the first season of "frazier" on dvd or something? along with the tweets, they are sending video of miss universe 2011. this is a video lela lopes recorded. she recorded a message explaining to the universe what the miss universe pageant is. >> hello, space creatures. i'm miss universe 2011. here on earth, we have a beauty pageant called miss universe, that is watched by 1 billion people. this year, i represented my country of angolaen and i beat other countries. being miss universe means that i am the most beautiful girl in the universe that we know of. >> jimmy: i like that, by the way. i like that they had her speak english. the woman is from angola.
are we assuming that the aliens only understand english? and they are going to have a hard enough time translafting without having to go, miss univar? what the hell is a univar? national geographic was very different when i was a young pervert. [ laughter ] going through the magazine to find the topless pygmy women in the back. never would i imagine one day they'd beam tweets into space. [ applause ] it is exciting. this is probably one of those moments that we will look back on and remember exactly where we were. right? >> god speed, john glenn. >> houston, the eagle has landed. >> that's one small step for man. one giant leap for mankind. >> hot hot polka dots!
[ applause ] >> jimmy: we should be very proud. by the way, i would like to wish a happy birthday to khloe kardashian odom. 28-year-olds ago, she was born to proud mom and dad kris and chewbacca kardashian. what do you get for the girl who inexplicably has everything, you know? khloe shares a birthday with j.j. abrams, toe by mcguire, ross perot and helen keller. it just goes to show you, horoscopes are crap. here's weird news. rabbi -- you may have seen this guy on tv, desperately clutching at the coat tails of celebrities. he's running for congress in the ninth district of new jersey and to help him, he's enlisted the assistance of jon gosselin. so, finally, some integrity comes to politics. for those that don't remember jon, he was one of the stars of
the reality show "hoarders." he and his wife collected a bunch of kids. the rabbi invited jon to speak at a press conference today in support of his one of platforms, i guess, tax deductible marriage counseling and also to promote his new line of ed hardy yarmulkes. there they are together. if an endorsement from jon gosselin helps to sway your vote any way, please don't vote. pretty sure the guy is living on a jet ski now. the first semifinal match in the euro cup was played between spain and portugal. the score was zero. both teams had zero at the end. spain won in a shootout. we're really seeing the best players on the best teams. tonight, we would like to share one of thee best plays. this is hand-selected by me, by the way. this is the euro cup play of the day.
>> jimmy: there's some -- some controversy right now surrounding oreo cookies. on monday night,oreo posted this picture. it was posted in support of gay pride. the rainbow theme was generally well received. got hundreds of thousands of likes on facebook. some people were very angry. which i don't know, whether you support same sex marriage or not, we can all agree, we need an oreo with that much frosting it in immediately. [ applause ] thank you. right guillermo? >> right, jimmy. >> jimmy: one -- what do they call oreos in mexico?
really? why do you think you're lying? >> no! >> jimmy: all right. one angry commenter wrote, being gay is an abomination in god's eyes. i won't by buying oreos anymore. that's what i say when i get up in the middle of the night and eat 12 of them. my favorite comment was from brent johnson who said, removing oreo from my page now. he's so up,se set, he is removi oreo from his facebook page. when you announce you are unfriending a cookie -- [ laughter ] you might have bigger problems to look into. so, now -- [ cheers and applause ] people are -- some people are boycotting kraft. kraft released a statement, saying, we have a proud history of supporting diversity and inclusiveness. even hostess is supporting kraft. i'm not sure what kind of statement they are trying to make with this, but i'll tell
you something. it's the thought that counts. [ laughter ] that's what i had for breakfast in the morning, by the way. [ applause ] this is a video that's very big on youtube right now. a guy by the name of steve and his daughter grace, they were on vacation in pigeon forest, tennessee. there's a ride called the screaming swing. one of those swings and his daughter wanted to go on it, she couldn't unless she had an adult. her dad, who doesn't normally like this sort of thing, sucked it up, went on the ride with her and fortunately for all of us, they videotaped the whole thing. >> hold on, dad. [ screaming ] >> oh, [ bleep ]!
[ screaming ] >> oh my god! oh! [ screaming ] [ screaming ] >> jimmy: i give up. i enjoyed that video so much, i wanted to meet the man behind all the shrieking, so, now we have steve and his daughter grace live via skype. hall local steell hello. thank you for joining us. steve, what is that on your shirt?
>> ah, that's a 3d pig. >> jimmy: it's very flattering. [ laughter ] now, steve, it -- you are not a big fan of rides in general, i'm guessing, right? >> ah, no, not a big fan of height and motion's not too far behind it. >> jimmy: i feel the same thing. grace, had you been on scary rides before this one? >> yes. >> jimmy: you love it, right? >> yeah. >> jimmy: okay, so -- [ laughter ] steve, where was your wife? why did you have to take grace on the ride, knowing that you don't like this stuff? >> it was kind of an accident. the ride was not at an amusement park, it was on the strip and we stumbled upon it and i was with another friend and his daughter and they were riding it and she wanted to ride it, as well. >> jimmy: oh. >> she wasn't tall enough to ride it by herself, she needed an adult to go with her. >> jimmy: oh, yeah. that's a difficult situation to be in. grace, had you ever heard your dad scream like that before? >> no, i never have. [ laughter ]
>> jimmy: so, the best part -- the video we saw, that was the first time around. steve actually some how wound up going up twice. here's the video. starting again. not much better the second time around. [ screaming ] [ laughter ] >> jimmy: it looks like a baby, like an actual baby. [ laughter ] [ laughter ] >> jimmy: the big question i want to ask is -- [ applause ] how did this video end up on youtube?
>> well -- we were able to buy the video from the ride for $15 and we were saying with another couple, there were ten of us total. we watched the dvd every night when we came back to the condo. on the fourth night, it ended up messing and we assumed that the maid threw it away or we accidentally threw it away. my friend that was with me, brian winkler, stole it and put it on youtube. >> jimmy: oh. is brian still alive? >> brian's in the same room with me right now, actually. >> jimmy: oh, he is. have strangers been making fun of you? >> ah, yeah, quite a few, actually. we found out, when it was posted, i was walking down the street to a neighbor's house and an 8-year-old and the other one, 6-year-old brother was on their briks and the 8-year-old goes, hey, big scaredy cat. i said, what did you say? his little brother goes, yeah,
we just saw you on youtube. i found out then it was posted. >> jimmy: grace, what did you get your father for father's day? >> um -- i got -- we got him a card and we got him a couple shirts from yellowstone. >> jimmy: yeah. you are going to have to do better than that next year. [ laughter ] well, that's a good dad you have there. thank you for talking to us, guys. that's steve and grace, everybody. [ applause ] and one more thing. the fourth of july is a week away and that means fireworks. as all good americans know, burning and exploding things is the finest way to express your national pride. but they can be dangerous. and that's why we've enlisted the help of one of hip hop's most prominent pyrotechnicians to help us out. here's waka flaka flame. >> every year, every fourth of july, we do roman candle fights.
i'm going to tell you about this fight. first, you get your t-shirt. you wrap it around europe head, you put the shirt on, the part where your neck go, right between your eyes like a ninja. then, you right the roman candle. one year, i ain't do it, i don't want to get the blame of this. a friend of mine hit somebody in the face and put they t-shirt on fire. that's like ghost face. the funniest year i ever had with roman candles. so, remember, kids, be safe, and light that [ bleep ] up! ♪ >> jimmy: hey, tonight on the show, selma blair is here. we have music from linkin park. and we'll be right back with matt wileblanc, so stick around. ♪[linkin park "burn it down"]

[ cheers and applause ]
>> jimmy: it's a good thing you didn't wear a dark blue tie or it would have -- >> i didn't go for the tie. >> jimmy: how are you doing? >> doing good. >> jimmy: congratulations on the golden globe you won for playing yourself. but not really yourself. >> thank you. i just -- i was listening to your monologue backstage and i used to read "national geographic," too. >> jimmy: yeah, right? we had to make do back then. kids don't understand. we had to walk miles in the snow to get pornography back then. >> yep. >> jimmy: well -- this show, first of all, is very funny. >> well, thank you. >> jimmy: really, really funny. and you do a great job on it. you play kind of a jerky version of yourself, would you agree with that? [ laughter ] maybe --
>> i don't know. >> jimmy: maybe dead on. i don't know you that well. >> the best way to describe it is, the public's perception of a celebrity. >> jimmy: got it. >> so we inflate certain things, no pun intended. >> jimmy: yeah. you've been cast on the show and, with these english producers and, who, of course, knew you from "friends" and that was the big deal. >> right, right. it's basically a show about making a show. you have shows like "the office" that are big hits in the uk, and the american networks bring them here and remake them here and they are successful here. well, this is about that whole process and, this network, they screw the whole thing up and one by one, step by step, just take away everything that is good about the show, including the brilliant lead actor they have, who is this older distinguished headmaster of a boy's school and replace him with me. [ laughter ] so it becomes about a coach of a hockey team and called "puck." >> jimmy: yeah. and you won a golden globe for it, which, i wonder if anyone's
ever won a golden globe for playing themselves. probably not. were you surprised that you won? >> yeah, i -- you know, it was hugely honored, obviously, but you know, we did seven episodes our first season and it hadn't been on in over a year, i was just happy, because it was open bar. i thought, go to the party. what the heck? and i thought, you know, it was going to be alec baldwin, then he wasn't there and i'm sitting at the table with david duchovny, he's up for one, too, that's always awkward. you got to sit at the same table. come on. can't be my table or your table? have to share. >> jimmy: yeah, right, you don't want to do that, no. >> and then, like, the p.a. from one of the guys on the crew came over, he said, just before the category, safes, okay, listen, if you win, go this way and come out from backstage, don't go that way, it's too long, go this way and i was like -- wow, maybe
he knows something i don't know. >> jimmy: yeah. >> i thought, well, that's a good sign. and he goes around, he says the same thing to duchovny. i was like -- that doesn't mean anything. >> jimmy: probably just trying to make him feel better, right? when did you know that "friends" was a big deal? like, a big deal? >> um -- i guess it was probably that first -- the first summer that we went on hiatus and it was that summer, it was in reruns that it went into the top five, i guess, and then it stayed there forever. >> jimmy: really? >> some strange things happened. i remember one time i was in -- i was going to work on the show and i was in bumper to bumper traffic on the 101 and kind of had the windows dark in my car and i'm looking over and traffic is just stopped and there's this really cute girl next to me and she's rocking out, listening to something on the radio. i turn my radio down, i put the window down, she's listening to the "friends" theme song.
it was on the radio all the time. >> jimmy: it was. >> and i go, that's pretty funny. she looks over and she sees me, takes her foot off the brake and smashes into the car in front of her and i was like, ooh. >> jimmy: you didn't stop and assist? >> no, i felt awful. and then althounother weird thit was a hiatus week, i was watching tv, the news was on in the middle of the day and they had this, this -- the screen was cut into six portions and each shot was a live shot of each of our houses from a helicopter and i was like, what the hell is the point of that? i'm looking, i look closer, i go -- my roof looks like [ bleep ]. so, the helicopter leaves, i get out the ladder, i needed a new roof. so, i was going through the yellow pages, i guess i can thank the news. >> jimmy: that's a security system. [ applause ]
true or false, you hate the theme song to "friends." [ laughter ] >> ah -- it's all right. [ laughter ] it's all right. does it sound like money to you? >> a little bit. kind of the same. >> jimmy: this is a weird thing. you shoot the show in england but it is set in hollywood. >> yeah, it's very difficult to shoot london for l.a. nothing is the same. >> jimmy: do you like living over there? >> yeah, it's kind of fun. you know, it's like europe, but in english. >> jimmy: just like it. [ laughter ] and, oh, i imagine "friends" is worldwide, but people are recognizing you from this show? >> you know, instead of hey, joey, it's hey, matt leblanc. >> jimmy: it could be worse, i guess. do you find when you are over there you start picking up the accent?
i have a friend over there that says herbs instead of herbs. >> they say coriander instead of cilantro, did you know that? >> jimmy: at least it's a different word. aluminum instead of aluminum. >>that's ridiculous. the guy on the show, steve, who plays one of the writers on the show, you know, we -- we get into it sometimes about the difference in the language. and he always, the trump card, he says, what is the language called. english. where was it invented? here. so shut up. so he gets me every time. >> jimmy: i guess so. i bet i could come up with something for you to -- oh, just mention july 4th and then run away. >> yeah. [ laughter ] >> jimmy: when we come back, we're going to show a clip from the show. it's a very funny show, it's called "episodes."
